Drivers needed in Clark County.
Our drivers choose the trips they are able to take and make a significant difference in the lives of seniors and those with a disability. We help people stay connected with their community. It might be a trip to a doctor appointment, doing their grocery shopping, going to an appointment, visiting friends or something else. Wherever the destination, it is a way to prevent isolation, to be part of society, and to get where they need to go.
The Transportation Security Administrator/TSA has extended the security directive requiring masks on public transportation conveyances and in public transportation hubs through April 18, 2022. We at Community in Motion will continue to follow federal mandates for mask wearing on our vehicles and in our volunteer drivers vehicles. This means that all drivers and passengers must wear a mask until April 18, 2022.
We help others get to necessary appointments, attend social events, grocery shop and participate in outings that help with their physical and emotional health.

To connect our neighbors with access to reliable transportation options that support healthy, independent living.
Since 1946, our agency has housed a number of different programs supporting seniors, people with disabilities, youth, and other at-risk populations in Southwest Washington. The agency began as the Clark County Council of Community Agencies. In 1951, we expanded and became the Vancouver Council of Social Agencies. In 1957, we again looked at area needs and incorporated with a focus on social planning and fundraising in Clark County. Two years later, a Committee on Aging was formed to look at ways to support our aging population. In 1990, the agency’s name changed to Human Services Council (HSC) to reflect our mission of helping people. In 2021, our agency again changed its name, this time to Community in Motion, reflecting our agency’s role in providing community transportation services.
Our agency has evolved with the changing needs of our community and has always been deeply committed to connecting our neighbors in southwest Washington with each other, and with the services that enrich their lives. This mission comes to the forefront with Community in Motion. Below are a few of the more recent milestones that brought us to where we are today.
